is why did an ambassador have little or no real security in a place like libya on september 11th. >> that's a great question. who was in charge of security at the time when we knew that there were a number of attacks, a number of threats leading up to this incident. we knew they had drones in the sky watching ago live video feed as this battle unfolded for 7 to 8 hours. ty woods, of course you remember he was killed tragically in this attack, a navy seal who was killed, said when the bodies arrived back in the united states, hillary clinton looked right into his eyes and still was blaming it on that video. listen. >> well it, came out on the 12th, i'm sorry, on the 14th. this was about the same time that i met hillary clinton when the bodies came in to andrews air force base. and i think i mentioned this to you before. hillary clinton came up to me and i gave her a handshake and a hug. and when i shook her hand she said to me: we are going to have the film maker arrested. >> do you i think this may be te single most shocking thing in the benghazi story. secretary of state doesn't get to
guy. nobody disagrees with that. when we talk about libya, north africa, the arab spring, the popular rueful, the people wanted the dictator out -- however much we disagreed with them, he was duly elected. let ukrainian sandal that. syntel because he turned back to russia and away from the european union, we have to get back to what what makes our country strong. it just does not fly when we say that we really need to punish russia for doing something that we would probably do if it happened to us. host: those are presidential elections set for the ukraine on the 25th of may. there is the territorial phot on the 11th of may. on the 11th of may. alberta is in jacksonville, florida. make sure you mute your television or radio and go ahead. put you on hold and we will come back to you. also in jacksonville, philip. philip in jacksonville. we lost you. let's go back to alberta. i think you're getting a little confused. we will move onto to nancy in lagrange, georgia. caller: i hope i am still a democrat. i don't think the sanctions are effective. i heard on msnbc that mr. putin signed a c
the health care act. the situation in libya was a tinderbox. those brave people who volunteer to work for our safety and our security understood this. it is not the same thing as i'm not a crook. it is not the same thing as aluminum tubes and mushroom clouds. this is always a risk area when people go into a country to try to make peace or solve problems in a dysfunctional government and people are rebelling. yes, that film did have something do with it and there was coverage of it. it was two weeks in the new york times and the washington post that showed that it was already a very dangerous situation and this horrific, and moronic film that came out that degraded their god and their religion was all it took for them -- from situation to explode. i think it is time for us to move on and stop with the distractions and all of the division because that is what this party always does. they point the finger at the women, fear the enemy. upon the finger at the minority, they're are the enemy. they want to divide us. we have to start thinking for ourselves and realize that if we don't come together
in benghazi, libya. for brave americans were murdered, and the issue has never been not only resolved but as each of the last 19 months insuring the issue of how and under what circumstances this heinous crime was committed continues. the senator from south carolina and i and others that will never give up on this issue in tell the truth is known in the people who perpetrated it are brought to justice. we have seen in the page turner in this chapter of cover and confiscation by this administration by the belated 19 months with a police of the following humans. first we will not pay much attention. this is from the benjamin roads to is supposed to be the public relations and public affairs office for the national security council. back, obviously the propaganda organ. the purpose is to underscore the these protests are rooted in an engine and video and not abroad or failure policy. i tell my colleagues that that was not a fact, that was not a fact. there was no evidence that these protests were rooted in an inch and a video. in fact, the station chief before these talking points were m
critical of president obama's foreign policy, particularly in libya because africa daffy fell, -- after qadhafi fell, we did nothing to secure the country. senator mccain and a couple of others and myself, senator rubio, went in 2011 to libya and we said in an op-ed piece if we don't get rid of these militias, libya is going to become a safe haven for terrorists. and you have got to understand this about the benghazi consulate -- it had been previously attacked in april of 2012. the british ambassador had been attacked in june of 2012. the british closed their consulate. the red cross closed their office because they had been attacked, and we have got email traffic coming from libya to washington at the state department level saying in august -- saying on august 16, we cannot secure the benghazi consulate from a coordinated terrorist attack, and al qaeda flags are flying all over benghazi. what they did not want you to know was the consulate in benghazi was very unsecured, everyone else had left the town and that the numerous requests for security enhancements going back for months had
, instability, and a new government, successes and failures of u.s. intervention in libya. the oversight committee's mission statement is that we exist to secure two fundamental principles. first, americans have a right to know that the money washington takes from them is well spent, and, second, americans deserve an efficient, effective government that works for them. our solemn responsibility is to hold government accountable to taxpayers. it is our job to work in partnership with citizen watchdogs to deliver the facts to the american people and bring reform to the federal bureaucracy. this is our mission. today the oversight committee convenes a fourth hearing related to the security situation in libya before, during, and after the september 11 terrorist attack which claimed the lives of four americans. the committee has previously brought forward important witnesses who offered new and enlightening testimony on security failures that forced the administration to walk back false claims about the nature of the terrorist attack. testimony of previous witnesses identified key questions i
, as we just confirmed, for the effort to get back libya on its feet, one of the things that has been encountered in the investigation of the state department conduct in libya is the overwhelming normalization, whether it be the attempt to reduce security personnel at diplomatic facilities or so-called normal levels or attempt to view the government of libya as normal host nation partners capable of providing protection like my colleague from texas just talked about. did you encounter this normalization philosophy during operation odyssey guard? >> yes, sir, i did. >> could you elaborate a little bit on that? >> yes. or instance, there was a desire to create a new normal within , which wasnment basically redefining of what i would consider sub-optimal. >> would you consider it hostile? >> yes, sir. ahead, continue. >> the hostile environment we were dealing with, our interaction certainly was not with our interagency counterparts, but the low profile by the american government and the u.s. military in that environment at the time, we were not deploying our forces. there was no marine
